Fevers???

Ds2 has had a fever hovering around 102 all day. I'm alternating Tylenol and Motrin every 3 hours. He's sitting here in just his diaper. I'm pushing fluids and he has eaten a few things today.

Any other secrets to deal with fevers?? We don't get them often...this is probably his 4th fever ever and he's almost 3.

Re: Fevers???

Put light clothing on him not just a diaper. If he is chilled his body fever will not go down because its trying to warm him. otherwise unless he is miserable i wouldn't worry about it too much. Our doc usually wants to see them if they have had 101.5 for more than 24 hours.

He's covered with a receiving blanket. Enough to keep him from being too chilled but not enough to keep him too warm. His fever jumped to 104 but has gone down again.

Luke warm bath with Epsom salt (as long as he doesn't try to drink the water)

I forgot about that. I remember doing that as a kid. He's in bed now...but I'll remember that if he wakes up fevering again.

Oh no! I've got the same thing here with my 18m lo. We made some fruit ice for a fun treat. This is the third day of it, can't wait for it to pass. Having a sick baby is no fun. Have you tried vinegar on the body?
